Welcome! Tally ho!

Our B.V.I. Adventure is designed to give our family, friends and any other interested followers a look into the life of two expatriates making their way on the island of Tortola. Tortola is the largest island in the British Virgin Islands.

So, why did we move 2,000 miles away from our home in Knoxville, Tennessee? Michael accepted a position as the director of retail and international sales for a Caribbean clothing brand.

Day 170: Snorkeling the Indians and So Much More!

Our favorite snorkeling spot in the BVI, the Indians did not disappoint on Day 170.

Thanks to a water-proof case for my camera that my dad gave me, we were able to take some underwater photos.

It was a beautiful day, above water and below...

I was so proud of my mother, who was a bit wary of snorkeling here or anywhere for that matter.  A few deep and calming breaths and she was on her way.   

You can see from this photo {below} where the boat was moored and how far we had to swim to reach the reef.  We snorkeled around the entire group of rocks and saw a wide variety of fish and coral.  There were a few tense moments...from ill-fitting masks that had to be refitted in the water to a jellyfish that stared down Michael.  But overall it was a wonderful experience. 

We were all so proud of my mom for overcoming her fears!  We were all smiles after completing the loop.

We headed over to Pirate's Bight on nearby Norman Island for lunch.

We stopped off at Willy T's too.  Check out this quadruple jump from the top of the boat!

Wait a minute, I think it's quintuplets!  There's a 5th jumper on the back left corner of the boat!  Did you see him the first time?  I didn't!

We also went to Peter Island, and then across the Sir Francis Drake Channel to get a look at our house from the water.   {That's it on the left!}

What a day!
